Is Kristen Hager Really Leaving Chicago Med?


Kristen Hager, who portrays Dr. Stevie Hammer on "Chicago Med," became a series regular for Season 7, which premiered in 2021. In the latest season's 14th episode, her character reconciled with her mother and moved back to Michigan, suggesting that "Chicago Med" fans have seen the last of her.

According to Deadline, Kristen Hager has parted ways with the "One Chicago" franchise, but the door has been left open to a return down the line. "We all really liked Kristen and would welcome her character coming back in the future," producers Diane Frolov and Andy Schneider said in a joint statement.

It remains to be seen if Hager is interested in an epic return to "Chicago Med." However, it seems that her absence is linked to real-life family commitments, as she took to Instagram earlier this month and announced her pregnancy by sharing a picture of her baby bump.
